Optics Education In The United Kingdom
Author(s): Robin Smith

Paper Abstract

In this paper we review optics teaching at the postgraduate MSc level in the UK. We precede this with some personal comments based on 20 years teaching experience in the Applied Optics MSc Course at Imperial College, London. As one might expect much of the MSc teaching in the UK is based at centres of research in optics. There are other centres of research where "modern" optics is only taught in undergraduate (BSc) option courses.
